It’s that time of year when many are flooding the aisles of the supermarket searching for every last ingredient required to make the perfect Thanksgiving Day feast. Hosts are arranging furniture to accommodate the incoming guests and making sure every corner is free of dust and dirt. Invited party goers are prepping for the occasion by shopping for the perfect outfit and baking a pie or two that will contribute to the meal. Warm scents fill the air, family is gathered in one place and delicious Thanksgiving favorites are served. Year after year these scenes replay much to our enjoyment.
Though, changes also occur over the years and perhaps some of these preparations have become more difficult to accomplish due to injury, medical condition, mobility limitations or the effects of aging. Aqua Home Care wants you to know that in-home care services can consist of not only support with everyday routines, but with the ones necessary to complete for special occasions as well. Whether you are hosting a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal or preparing to attend one at the home of a friend or family member, in-home care services that help with daily tasks can also be beneficial for holiday prep. Some ways include:
- Cleaning the house
- Transportation to the grocery store
- Placing food items in and out of the cart
- Transportation to shopping centers
- Trying on outfits for the occasion
- Helping to ensure safety while in overly crowded stores and parking lots
- Meal preparation
- Calling family members for any necessary arrangements
- Rearranging furniture to accommodate guests
- Washing linens
- Placing fresh sheets on beds
- Transportation to the home of family or friends
The holiday season is a time for friends, family and celebration. Aqua Home Care understands the value in being able to spend these special occasions with loved ones as you always have. We believe that in-home care shouldn’t be something that inhibits these traditions from happening, but rather enables you to live your life as close as possible to the way you always have.
